For Your Vintage Birthday

     I have a dear friend who loves it when I use green & yellow as a combo for my cards and she is always telling me that she's not old, she's simply "aged like a vintage wine."   So, here's the card I made for her birthday a week ago.  I created it as my DT card for Through the Craft Room Door this week and our new challenge has the usual "Anything Goes" theme.  Our marvelous sponsor this week is Oozak.


     The image is from Sandi Huggett (Sandi's Samples), called "Lady Kathleen" and I colored her with a combination of ProMarkers, Spectrum Noir, and Touch Twin markers.  The sparkle in the corners of the die cut is created with Cloud 9 Velvet Glitter from Sparkle n Sprinkle.  For a full materials list, please visit the TTCRD blog post this week.

     I added the birthday sentiment to the inside this time.   Here's a picture:


     Challenges:

     Come play along with us at Through the Craft Room Door this week.  How can you not want to play in an "Anything Goes" theme?  We're looking forward to seeing what you create and enter.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
